With a post-show discussion

National Dance Company Wales (Folk) return with a brand new triple bill. TERRA FIRMA tells stories drawn from the very ground on which we build our communities.


The Green House – Caroline Finn

The Green House brings the outside in; on a verdant Wes-Anderson style TV set, the ‘stars’ are stuck in a never-ending loop. Beautifully unsettling and full of character. Choreographed by Caroline Finn, winner of the Matthew Bourne New Adventures Choreographer Award 2014. Caroline’s trademark darkly comic and quirky choreography asks the question: “if we do the same things over and over, how can we expect different results?”


Tundra – Marcos Morau

Tundra is a barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life and tears pages from history books about Russian folk dance, the USSR and revolution. Multi-award winning choreographer Marcos Morau’s bold style draws inspiration from art and cinema. Tundra takes old ideas and uses contemporary dance to give them renewed meaning.


Atalaÿ - Mario Bermudez Gil

Atalaÿ is a watch tower from which far off lands can be seen from four points; a contagious dance influenced by the warmth of the Mediterranean. Named as one of Dance Magazine’s ’25 to watch’ in 2017, Mario Bermudez Gil draws on his Spanish Roots and Israeli training and blends them with NDCWales’ quirky theatricality to make a piece full of character and incredible skill.
